Sudan Recovery Fund Newsletter Volume 2, Issue 3Published 22 Sep 2010
The Sudan Recovery Fund (SRF), established in 2008, has succeeded in attracting considerable donor resources (USD 112 million to date) to aid stabilization and recovery in South Sudan. Since mid 2009, the Fund has sharpened its focus on the provision of crucial assistance to the regions of South Sudan that face high levels of insecurity and vulnerability. The Fund now has specific programmes aiding stabilization in Jonglei and Lakes States, and similar programmes are being developed for Warrap and Eastern Equatoria States. This newsletter discusses: (1) the challenge for the Government and the agencies assisting the return migration of South Sudanese. (2) Agreement between the Government of South Sudan and the UN on pre-referendum priorities. (3) Support for women in agricultural development by the Norwegian Church Aid (NCA). (4) The SRF's efforts to support Juba's street children.
